Its not that heavy really. Do not get caught inside, like any other reef. Its a tube ride. Some people say it is heavier than back door pipe but they would be liers. Its not Teahupoo. Not so scary reef.
8 years ago, this was a tropical paradise, now it is a bit wacked. Lots of potential for getting hurt. The area is mind bogglingly beautiful.
Its alright I guess...

strange place - we visited this town in 1994 and back then it was full of potheads, tweakers and drunks - mostly young white pastfari dropout wannnabees subsidized by mom and dad, but we saw weapons and there was a lot of petty theft. the place was dirty and basically a shithole. i dont care how good the wave is, who needs the crap (literally) on land. has the town gotten any better? back then it was the pits.
